Roasted vegetables: this is certainly the best way to cook vegetables. When the handles add depth and delicious flavor, and end up with the perfect texture. This has been one of my favorite lunches lately, just a bowl of quinoa topped with roasted vegetables drizzled with lemon. Very well!

How to roast vegetables in the oven

minutes. Add the tomatoes,
You can roast almost any vegetable. Just use the same simple method: chopping (things like green beans and asparagus are simply left whole), drizzling with oil, seasoning, mixing, and roasting. Mix once or twice through cooking.
Just keep in mind that different vegetables take several amounts of time, so I usually like to grill vegetables with the same cooking time together (or give a head start to firmer root vegetables and then add others later).

Tips for roasting vegetables
- Use a high heat. Usually, for roasted vegetables, the ideal range is 400 to 450 degrees. Always preheat the oven first.
- Use a dark baking sheet if you have one. This dark coating encourages browning. I hate them for baking, but they’re great for vegetables.
- Extend even and try not to crowd.
- Season. They really are great with salt alone, but for more flavor, try garlic, curry powder, fresh or dried herbs, cheese, vinegars, citrus fruits, sesame oil, honey, taco seasoning, bacon, mustard, pesto, etc. Keep in mind things like honey and cheese that you’ll want to add closer to the end so it doesn’t burn.
- Don’t forget to throw halfway. The edges of the baking sheet cook hotter than the center, and if you do not strip they can brown too much at the bottom.
